This is something that bothers me: when pressed for my views on religion, i have to describe myself as agnostic. This bothers me because i feel that people have a general view of agnostics as fence-sitters unwilling to commit to one side or the other. When i examine my beliefs however, i don't find any kind of indecision or non-committal.
This my point - Christians believe in God; Muslims believe in Allah; Buddhists believe in Nirvana; Atheists believe there is no God or other higher power. Personally, i don't want to believe, i want to know. All of the above mentioned religious/non-religious demographics can offer up arguments of various degrees, but can any prove themselves to be 100% correct? While many would say Atheism, with the help of science, can; i would say that it may come close, but there's always that miniscule degree of uncertainty. Do Atheists know there is no god? Or is believe a more appropriate term? I am just fine with anyone believing what they want; but i think it's arrogant to assume others will take up your beliefs over their own.
I don't feel the need to believe or disprove anything to anyone. Personally, i'm happy to try to discover the best ways to live, and to appreciate people regardless of what they might believe. And my rejection of the need for belief is anything but indecisive.
